You are invited to the third annual LivLyme Foundation Gala! The annual LivLyme Gala is our biggest fundraiser of the year. It is a fun night with great food, cocktails, and music!
We award our “LivLyme Hero” award to a recipient in the Lyme and Tick-borne disease space that is making a huge impact in the Lyme community. At the gala you get to hear about LivLyme and what we are doing to combat Lyme and Tick-borne diseases. The LivLyme Foundation was founded in 2017 by Olivia Goodreau, who was 12 years old and has Lyme disease. Olivia is raising money to provide funding for Lyme and tick-borne disease treatment and research, and to increase tick education and awareness around the globe. Dr. Neil Spector of Duke University will be our Keynote Speaker and the 2019 LivLyme Hero Award recipient. Dr. Spector is a world renowned Breast Cancer researcher, heart transplant recipient, 17 year Lyme warrior and author of “Gone in a Heart Beat”. We are also thrilled to have our distinguished guests Colonel Nichole “Fifi” Malachowski (Ret.) of the US Airforce.
The gala is a sit down dinner and concert with silent and live auction items, an open bar and signature drinks. It will be a fun night where we can make a real difference the lives of children with Lyme, and to find a cure for every person that suffers from Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Cocktail/Concert attire. We ask that you wear something that has “A Flare of Lime Green”, to show your support for Lyme disease. There is no age requirement.
